Great Workplace Culture

Awesome people are the foundation of our business.

The Furst Difference

When our Founder and CEO, Darlene Furst, started the business, she had two young kids. As a working mother, she understood the importance of offering a flexible work environment. Our staffing agency culture offers flexibility so our team can fulfill responsibilities such as taking children to appointments or other important personal duties. We believe fostering an environment of fairness and respect for personal and professional responsibilities better supports the health, happiness, and work-life balance of our valued employees – and leads to better results for our clients and candidates.

FurstStaffing strives to meet – and exceed – the expectations of our clients and candidates. In fact, that’s how our business grew. In 1971, we were only doing direct hire placements, but our happy clients asked us for help filling temporary roles in their organizations. Of course! We were happy to provide that service to our Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin clients – just as we continue to meet our partners’ evolving needs in every way possible.

Our Mission

Our goal has never been to capture the largest market share. Rather, we’re determined to be the staffing partner that overdelivers on our promise:

To provide creative, personalized staffing solutions and career opportunities that exceed your expectations.

Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion

Our company embraces the diverse backgrounds, ideas, and points of view our employees bring to our business. FurstStaffing is welcoming and inclusive to all, respecting and valuing everyone’s unique contribution to our business, regardless of gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, culture, education, and life experiences.
